South Jacksonville residents should expect some construction in the village over the next month.

Trustees approved bid proposals on a pair of construction projects Thursday night.

South Jacksonville Water Superintendent John Greene says Kyle Kraushaar of White Hall will handling the repairs to the retaining wall on South Main that collapsed in January.

“It’s going to come completely down, have new footing and this time be a poured solid concrete wall,” Green says.

The project will cost the village nearly $7,000.

Green says the other construction project, repairing the east overhang entrance at Village Hall, will be tackled by CNA Construction out of Jacksonville.

“It will just get a new look. It is a flat roof and has rod-iron railing on it now. We will have aluminum pillars and new steel entry door,” says Green.”

Green says the entrance is more than 20 years old and is in desperate need of repair. The job will cost the village $7,500.

Both projects are expected to begin soon.
